This is the place that I moved into 10 years ago, after my divorce. It made me into “the guy who lived over the ice cream shop”, which became a huge piece of how I was identified.
I’m moving away from the city where I’ve spent the last 29 years of my life – from the county where I’ve spend the last 31. It’s bittersweet, because I *know* that I am gaining things that I could only dream about (I received my first Father’s Day card yesterday!) but I’m also saying goodbye to a large chunk of my life as I knew it.
So please excuse me if I seem a little “off” this month. ;)
Between that and the toothache, well, I AM a little “off”.
Awkward transition – the people who *aren’t* off are the ones who have already posted their entries: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/663790.html I know that some of you had a difficult time, but man, the people who have posted so far (that I have read) have raised the bar! The deadline is tonight. So I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with!
